Kids in India
While our main mission is about kids growing up abroad, we recognize that part of growing up is learning to give back to those in need. At Desi Knowledge, we decided to try to make a difference in the area of education in India. As our online stores revolves around books, we also want to give books to kids in India.
We have been inspired by an online shoe retailer, Toms Shoes, which has a simple but powerful message: For every purchase we donate a shoe to a child in need. We are now operating our online store with a similar pledge: for every purchase we donate a book to a child in need.
We do this by making a financial contribution at the end of every quarter to Room to Read. This contribution is based on the number of orders placed on our store in the prior quarter. Please check out the wonderful work that this organization does and support it directly as well.
We also recommend several other organizations that do great work furthering education in India -
